21. Not yet. It will take ten righteous years to make us solid again though
Ten years is nothing to people in many parts of the world. It will take ten years of hard work healing the hatred, ending the distortion, restoring integrity to our institutions, redressing the skewed balance of power in America; governing wisely from the top, fighting for change from the bottom. That's if Kerry wins. If he loses it will take another ten years, twenty total, to undo the damage an 8 year Bush Presidency would cause our nation. Assuming we had enough real freedom left to prevail against a stacked deck in 2008.
